Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini, said Saturday night that the probability of a general strike on Monday was high.

Upon entering the meeting with Finance Ministry Budgets Director Gal Hershkovitz, Eini said: "I hope that we will make progress tonight and move toward an agreement, but I am very skeptical."

The strike is scheduled to begin Monday at 6:00 A.M., and will cover airports, seaports, local authorities, government offices and other areas of the public sector. Full details of the strike will be published Sunday, the Histadrut labor federation said.
